of authority that provided for that supervision in this executive level. a number of us meet regularly each month and this project is always on the agenda. we do have a quick process to move through that. those 5 or 6 agencies try to make sure that the project moves forward. we all get how important market street is to san francisco. it's the most complicated straight and that's why it's not moving as quickly as we'd like it to. on day one i can. for the entire group that this is not moving faster and it's because of the market streets mitigating facts that we need to contemplate. you have director level focus on that i want to assure you have that. similarly that is an integrated team we have a private sector team and a public team. there's a design consultant and transportation consultant. there's special departments that need to be wound together. i hope the public understands that we have some good options that were we have the private sector side and the public side and the community working together to make sure this gets done right. which does mean it's not a face process. there was
bond that those of us who love animals and those who love dogs especially have. i think by that measure in terms of the quality of your soul, given how you treat and talk about bertie, i think that that makes you an amazing person. and i wish you the very best in your new endeavors, but i know that you're still going to be here. i appreciate the fact that you, as you indicated, you're going to make sure that district 9 gets more resources in your new job, which i appreciate. and i look forward to working with you. and, of course, you know, one of the things that i think it's an illustration of the kind of person you are, the kind of supervisor you are is that as you leave, you leave behind not only the work, but you also leave in place someone that you have mentored and someone that you have helped, and that's i think a very important testament of your leadership. the fact that you're passing it on and i look forward to working with supervisor tang as she goes on board, but the fact that she is there is another testament to your leadership. thank you. >> supervisor avalos. >> supervisor
of the 335 or so people who got notification and 56 of them told us that they got the notification and walked away from the district. they just gave up when they got the notification. they did not way for the may letter, they walked on the march letter. that is a sixth of all of the people that you are looking to get rid of. we don't orderly like to compare ourselves to other cities in california because of our uniqueness and all of that. but, this is the paper from the united teachers of los angeles. headline says, first time in four years, no riffs. no riffs. and they detail across the bottom from 5900 in 2009 up to 9500 just as soon as mr. davis left and they had 0 this year, all right? so no rifs, you have figures in our own presentation that indicate to you that you don't have to do this. and so i ask you to think seriously about it, the one vote that i would like you to make is have the vote on seniority order and i would like to see you make that one this time. thank you very much. >> thank you mr. kelley. >> okay. questions, or comments from board members? mr. haney? >> sure. this is
received the news fund, trustee, [speaker not understood], told us that laguna honda hospital is the recipient of ms. dolores knight's $500,000 donation and that the money is deposited to -- actually in january just last month, we had received a complete disbursement of the $500,000. the money is deposited into the patient gift fund. so, let me talk a little bit about our gift fund. the gift feud at laguna honda hospital provides activities and experiences that enrich the lives of laguna honda hospital residents that includes the expenditures for musical entertainment, cultural celebration, special holiday meals, outing to the parks, ball games, [speaker not understood] and other events. so, for the end of the last fiscal year, the sum balance of this gift fund was at $1.9 million, including both in cash and in donated stock at the market value. at the hospital we have committees called the gift fund management committee. it's the oversight of the gift fund. so, this committee will meet and then make a proposal to the san francisco health commission, the annual budget based on
to this goes back to one bay area grant program. we are working with the planning department on the land use transportation strategy . the last 3 things we want to highlight 2 are the neighborhood transportation studies. awarded to the authority. the first one is the mobility study this is looking well the vehicle sharing pilot program is one of the recommendations coming out of the study. transportation working group and many city agencies particularly the department of the health and the heel zone initiative we hosted last month a vehicle sharing workshop. to share experiences community run vehicle sharing programs to give that feedback to the bay view community group who identified that as their top priority this group had six meetings our final meeting on march 12th where the final deliverable will be a draft business plan for a vehicle sharing pilot program to seek discretionary grants. on february 13 we have a first public meeting that was very well attended there will be an out research summary on our website short ly the next public event meeting late spring early summer. the
. >> so before we actually look at delaying a month which i think would set us back i lot i want to ask if there's any other way we can make a more robust process of reviewing candidates whether -- i'm not sure if we can do it possibly in closed session we can't do it but if there's another way it can be conducted. >> i'm sure there's a way we can do that the problem with doing it today is we haven't agenda ized it. we need to agenda ize a meeting where we can adopt an action. i'm certain there's a process for expanding participation in the process subject to resolving the closed session and confidentiality issue i'm not sure about at this point. >> commissioner weiner. >> so if there's a way that there's two members that would effectively be members of the community and participate in the entire process and have that five person committee i think that's the goal i think there's a distinction between members exhaust ive ly, versus a consultation process which is not the same thing so i do make a motion to continue this one month. >> motion from commissioner weiner is there a second? >
to go some what conservative here because i might end up with a us history class with 8 kids in it and then i have to parcel that out and so this is anticipating next year, i am not saying that we have them under filled this year, but being conservative for next year, does that make sense? >> yes. >> it is just like at my school was just the biggest school there are so many students in one classroom and over 30 and teachers always complain tla are so many students, why can't we redistribute the students? >> why can't you redistribute students? >> they are just saying... >> like we don't need that many teachers, then why can't we just put the students in their classroom and have the teachers teach them? >> and then, you know, i would have to put my mission perspective on it. assuming that is passed. and so, but i do know that the number of sophomores going to junior classes, for instance, it does not always, you know, even as the way that you want it to, you will get the classes with like 8 students in them. so you can redistribute them and you have a choice. you can go above
's yesctionv used, how it's expected to be used here in your case. * generally again, the program requests the authorization -- the request will be the full 250 million. with commercial paper programs you typically don't initiate the full authorization on day 1. so, on day 1 the idea is of that 250 million, 100 million will be established. so, you'll be paying on the full 100 from day one, not the 250. so, that's a mechanism of to put authorization in place but reduce costs. the estimated cost for the 100 million, assuming it were all drawn for an entire year is about 2.2 million dollars in interest costs. and i'm going to show you the full work up of costs for these three transactions. the commercial paper program currently is expected to stay outstanding until 2019, okay, at which point approximately 100 million will be converted to long-term debt. and, so, much of this would be repaid through to the director's point with cash on hand. if federal dollars come in, you'd pay a draw on cp. if [speaker not understood] you'd pay your draw on cp, et cetera. and then back to the third grant ant

taller, more inviting grounds for retail spaces as well as more retail uses on the second floor. both the nonprofit and philanthropic presence in the neighborhood and give the community a powerful voice in shaping its own development and character. i am particularly proud of the formula retail ban we have included in this ncd. this will make divisadero only the fourth neighborhood in the city to have such control. we have seen the value of formula retail restrictions right down the street in hayes valley. this -- while preserving existing businesses, the controls boast local small businesses and helps foster a unique neighborhood feeling. we are a diverse community, a collection of unique individuals and businesses and our commercial districts are and should be a reflection of that unique san francisco personality. establishing this neighborhood commercial district will help local and small business owners and those who want to become small business owners. i look forward to working with my colleagues and the merchants and the neighborhoods of the divisadero as this legislation procee

into a lease and we would immediately start constructing the shaft. in order for us to have the shaft built in time for the machines to get there, we need to start that. our original plan was to start that work in january of this year. so, we're already behind on that. so, before we start impacting the critical path, that is not a decision that would be made in a year. it's a decision we'd be making now to move forward with the demolition and the excavation to build the shaft. >> director big nan. >> if we could discuss the funding. i don't remember if it was in open session or closed session -- was it in closed session? can we discuss that very briefly? i know that the number you gave us versus the number that seems to be perceived by the public were different. so, if we could just briefly go through the funding and where it is going that would be great. >> i think the confusion on the total amount was just a mad matter of ating the components of the 1.15 -- and .15. it is .15 million and [speaker not understood]. * 9.15 again, those are both not to exceed numbers. so, that's kind of a wo

that while they could directly administer the different garages, that we have in front of us, they consider the fact that the added oversight and community relations provided by these organizations are in the best interest of the garage and the city. i think and heard and believe that many of you have heard from the leadership of the union square community about the impact that this organization has had in union square within a part of town that sees some of the most densely traveled and densely parking situations that we have in the city. so, with that, colleagues, ask for your support for this and we will proceed. >> great. i assume, colleagues, that we need a roll call on this. we can have a roll call, madam chair. >> on item 16, supervisor cohen? cohen aye. supervisor farrell? farrell aye. supervisor kim? kim aye. supervisor mar? mar aye. supervisor wiener? wiener aye. supervisor yee? yee aye. supervisor avalos? avalos no. supervisor breed? breed aye. supervisor campos? campos aye. president chiu? chiu aye. supervisor chu? chu no. there are 9 ayes and 2 no's. >> the resolution is adopte

[laughter]. >> any other comments. >> again this gives us an opportunity on our light rails to address the camera issue. the camera issue is not going to go way. maybe it will go to court but when things go to court nobody ever hears about it but i would say because our inter um director is forth right i've known her for a long time but somehow we need to have a hearing on our light rail and critical lines we get the funding from the federal government that's okay but we need to pay attention in this hearing and address the cameras and the safety we had a chinese coming who were beaten very badly. there was a camera on that box but no camera on the bus somebody got stabbed on the 9 no camera on the bus it goes on and on and on because we just -- the camera or recording system that could help the law enforcement in this case the law enforcement doesn't seem to care so chief, i'm putting you on notice i know i'm your friend but do the right thing. mayor -- we can talk the talk time to walk the walk. those supervisors who come up and back t
, allow our military to arrest and detain american citizens on u.s. soil without a warrant or due process. this would repeat the forced incarceration of the 1940s of 120,000 japanese americans who spent years in interment camps without notices of charges, right to an attorney, or right to a trial. from my perspective and the perspective of many constitutional scholars, these indefinite detention provisions violate fundamental american legal principles of the presumption of innocence, our fifth amendment right to due process, the sixth amendment right to fair trial, the eighth amendment prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment, and these provisions would allow activists and journalists to be detained for exercising their first amendment rights to free speech. i want to take a moment and thank the large coalition that has come together to ask us to support this. there are dozens of organizations in the city including the bill of rights defense committee, the coalition for safe san francisco, the asian law caucus, the labor council, the san francisco 99% coalition. i want to thank su

[ applause ] >> hi, there, my name is sandy coleman, i'm a parent of a child that graduated from flinn elementary school. my son michael was in mis coleman's class, so i am here to have her please reelected to be a teacher because she is a really excellent special education teacher. i think that a lot of things that people don't realize that when you have a child that has behavior issues it is hard to find a teacher that is a good fit and i moved my son in fourth grade to flinn elementary because his old school was not working out and he had a teacher that was abusive to the kids and i think that it is important that people realize that you have to find a teacher that is going to be nurturing, caring, pretty much like your child and keep your child in a safe space and we found that with miss coleman and i am just appalled as to why they would not want to have her come back to flinn because she was told that i did not make a connection with the students and
have heard but what will be helpful is if the commission can provide us with focus the next steps because weapon to make sure that we are putting our resource where they are best helping rate pairs and the key consumption in all 12 scenarios that we have seen have very rapid city wide roll-out and a great deal of residential and commercial participation, a 12% average overall opt out and the opt out has been that low because of the assume rate parody or near term rate parody with otherwise p and g rates and they include city borrowing which, is a key financial risk that you asked about in the past of a billion dollars and on the other hand, that comes with more money to do local build outs faster but one of the problematic risk that is we talked about previously is that there is still an assumption of 6,000 projects between now and 2017 and so that is a large amount of project do over that short period and now lines of gas and boy gas and none million dollars of purchases there through 2017 and that there would as some hetch hetchy power available and there would be some skiing 20

, the ratings are going to be low. because of all the other things that are happening in and around us. so, we've taken care of business. that's why i think we're viewed very differently than all the other cities i think in the state of california. yes. >> [speaker not understood]. [speaker not understood]? >> qualities, it's standing right next to me. so, in terms of public service, follow through, i mean, carmen has demonstrated very thoroughly in that district what it takes to be an effective supervisor. and the things that i have seen her do, i mean, she's hauled me out to merchant walks, to coffees on weekends, to garbage pick ups, to work along sunset boulevard picking up dead trees and fallen trees. and then talking with people down at the java coffee shop on noriega and finding out what's wrong with muni and how come they have these turn arounds which they hate out there. i mean, you just get into every single nitty-gritty thing that i think probably every supervisor does. i've done that with the other supervisors as well. and you have to just bring that back in, absorb it, make sure

that there will be an additional cost. we have most of the funding in place or proposed for the next budget cycle to get us through the next phase on how much more we're going to need. we've identified a couple of options. i want to clarify this isn't money that doesn't exist. some things that agencies would have in their capital budgets the enhancements is the delta we're going to have to figure out to fund. this is something i think would be an appropriate topic for the mayors staff. it's very common more than normal or not we start a project before accident funding is there. if we started the project only when we had enough money we wouldn't start the projects. i th think this would be a terrific project for grants. thanks for the time >> thank you for the presentation. i have a lot of these questions but i'll save them. we have to get ready for our next meeting. so we can go onto public comment. if anyone wants to comment please come forward >> i want to say on the face of it when i heard the the plan to push the bicycle traffic down to mission i was more surprised it seems unnatural. if you look at a map a
